Ok all, two big-ish updates:
1) After a whole bunch of grunting and cutting, and a lot of wire fishing to get the rears hooked up, the Volt-6s are in!! I took some REW readings, but I'm not sure how/what to post. I have some "before" readings I took, but I can't really compare them to the "after", because it's not a 1:1 comparison. There are two each of the left and right surrounds (one per row), and in the "before" reading they have their own processor and amp channel. In the "after" I combined each side to a single channel, and used the others for dedicated rear processing and amplification. So basically the "before" readings have 4 readings for the surrounds, (Left front surround, left rear surround, right front surround, right rear surround) with no rears; the "after" have 4 readings for surrounds and rears (left front and rear surround, right front and rear surround, left rear, right rear).
OTOH I can tell you that there's a HUGE difference b/w the Bose and the Volts, and I haven't even EQ'd them yet! Definitely a worthwhile upgrade, I can already hear things in the Dolby Atmos demo disk that I didn't know were there before!
Any requests for what folks would like to see?
2) The date for the GTG is drawing near! We're just about two weeks out, and it's looking good! We're still on for 10/29, and the time is looking like 3:00 - 5:00. The house is still going to be on the market then (unless an offer comes in before ), and according to the realtors that's the best time of day for me to block off and NOT allow requests for visits. I guess they don't even schedule open houses during that time, because it's in the middle of football!
So far for participants I have: BrolicBeast, SeanBWI, NWCGrad, asoofi1, and (maybe) TMcG. Any other takers? Please let me know ASAP, b/c I'm about to move the coordination over to PMs, and don't want to miss anyone!
